With Drupal 6.28, a client has pulled an ical ( with parser_ical ) feed using a Feeds Importer and wants a calendar display view. This is working just fine. Although the feed and server sit in the same city (and timezone), at some point, it assumes the iCal feed is a GMT and is recalculating for central time. Thus, appointments show up about 5 hours too early.
I'd love to automatically add +5 to those
DTEND on import.
Where is the best place to do so?
hook_views_query_alter()the right approach?
Is manually editing the feed returned by the iCal feed parser module an option? It's "minimally maintained" and this install will live on Drupal 6 for a while.
Is editing the parser_ical/includes/ParserIcalFeedsParser.inc file that comes with the the iCal feed parser module a possible solution?
The ical feed starts with the following.
BEGIN:VCALENDAR PRODID:-//SRC//EN VERSION:2.0 CALSCALE:GREGORIAN METHOD:PUBLISH X-WR-TIMEZONE:America/Chicago BEGIN:VEVENT
A sample sequence would be something like the following.
